Treat Excessive Underarm SweatExcessive Underarm Sweat

Treating Excessive Underarm Sweat
We rely on social interactions in both our personal and professional lives. While this is simply part of being human, for those with excessive underarm sweat, interaction can become embarrassing. If you find yourself avoiding reaching for the top shelf or stearing clear of close contact with coworkers, friends and family, don't feel alone. Millions suffer from this all too common condition.

What Causes The Condition?
It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly why you sweat more than normal as there are many underlying causes. If you suffer from an anxiety disorder, it is not uncommon for excessive underarm sweating to occur. Other possible reasons include:

  • Use of certain medications
  • Menopause
  • Pregnancy
  • Thyroid problems
  • Infectious diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Excessive use of alcohol
  • Stroke
  • Heart failure
  • Certain cancers

Symptoms of Excessive Sweating
Just what determines excessive sweating? After all, it's the body's natural cooling system. To get a better understanding if you sweat more than normal, consider the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty keeping clothes dry
  • Deodorant does not last throughout the day
  • Sweating for no reason

If you think you are impacted by excessive underarm sweat, there is hope. Two procedures are available that can bring you the relief you deserve.

Botox Injections
Although it's not known if it's effective for other areas of concern, Botox injections have proven highly effective in treating excessive underarm sweating. The procedure is minimally invasive as a dose of onabotulinumtoxinA is injected into the skin of the underarms. Average results last around six months, however some patients have reported relief for up to two years following injection. Overall, the procedure has been deemed a safe and effective therapeutic option for those struggling with the embarrassing effects of excessive underarm sweating.

Laser Treatment
For more severe cases of excessive underarm sweating, laser treatment can provide a more effective and often permanent solution. Many patients find the relief they are looking for after a single treatment; however, depending on the severity of the problem, they could require future treatments. The nature of the visits are non-invasive, allowing patients to return to life as usual immediately following treatment. Best of all, laser treatment only takes about 30 minutes, allowing you to quickly get back to your daily duties.
